Okay, we’re not talking zombies here. Following the release of their brand new disc Dead Again, doom/goth metal legends Type O Negative are now touring the U.S. in support of their first album of new material since Life is Killing Me was released in 2003.

“(The set list) is going to be a mix of everything we do,” said Type O Negative keyboardist and album producer Josh Silver in an interview with Dread Central. “There’s going to be hardcore, there will be some dirge songs, and some melodic stuff. That’s what Type O is; an eclectic mess.”

Among the “eclectic mess” will be such well known goth-rock numbers as “Black No. 1” and “Christian Woman,” both of which come from the band’s multi-platinum selling album, Bloody Kisses. The quartet, which also consists of frontman and bassist Peter Steele, guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly, will also be playing a half hour of new material from the impressive Dead Again disc. Among these tracks will be “Halloween in Heaven”, a salute to such deceased rockers as Jimi Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, George Harrison, John Lennon and John Bonham, just to name a few (the song in fact was written in memory of their good friend “Dimebag” Darrell of Pantera fame).

Stay tuned to Dread Central for the full interview with Silver. In the meantime, you can click here to get Dead Again through Evilshop, and see them live with opening acts Celtic Frost and Brand New Sin.

    Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene



    One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

    Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

    Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

    Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
